When I attended Junior High wood shop, the machines included a tenoning machine and a mortising machine. It also had a double arbor table saw, a 12 inch jointer, and a 36 inch planer. The tenoning machine had circular saw blades that cut the shoulders on both sides and planer blades removed the sides of the tenon, all in one pass! The mortising machine was dedicated to mortising with bits of several sizes. These machines had to have come from a production wood shop somewhere. But why?

We got all the machines working and produced some furniture parts well beyond what schools produce now.
